Mystery Longing to be Known

A Triduum Retreat

    As we walk with Jesus during these three days, we are immersed in the mysterious and revelatory experiences of human life and death, and resurrected life.  By being mindful of the grace of each moment, we see more clearly how God invites us into deeper relationship in ordinary and extraordinary ways, and we embrace more fully our call to be “stewards of the mysteries of God” (I Corinthians 4:1). 

    Through word, song and silence; encounter and solitude; symbol, ritual and not-knowing; we remember and celebrate how Jesus’ life and death have enabled us to live our life “hidden in Christ with God” (Colossians 3:3) even now.

Overnight Guests: A limited number of rooms are available so early registration is encouraged.  The cost for the retreat is $225.00 which includes three nights’ lodging, meals, and the retreat program. 

Commuters are welcome to participate in the Triduum liturgies, retreat presentations, and meals.  The cost for commuters is $75.00.  Please let us know in advance if you plan to participate as a commuter so we will have sufficient seating, handouts, etc. for everyone.
